The reason for this is that there's a couple of popular devices
(keyboard/mouse combos) that claim to have both relative x/y axes and absolute
x/y axes simultaneously.

You lose the ability to go past the min/max reported for x/y (which in my case
was 255/255). It can be fixed in the driver, but nobody volunteered for it

If you feel like it: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17637
